They're Back


Two years ago, a pair of killdeer made their nest in our driveway. They toss aside the gravel and voila ~ they've got a nest. You can read about it here:



Well, they're back. In the same place. The only problem is that the county is running new water lines out here. The line is going through our right of way, about six feet from the nest. I put up two stakes with orange landscape tape in hopes that the dozier, gravel trucks and construction boots will tread lightly. Time will tell.
Until next time.....
